About Our Chiropractic Health Services

What Is Chiropractic Care? 

Chiropractic care is a section of medicine that focuses on the structure of the body - particularly the spine - and how it affects the function of every part of the body. Over the last 115 years, chiropractic care has been the leading natural and non-invasive approach to treating chronic spinal pain conditions. More than 15 million Americans annually choose chiropractic health treatments for safe, natural and effective relief from back pain, neck pain, headaches, extremity pain, poor overall health, and much more. 

The field of chiropractic medicine continues to change, and Advanced Spinal Care & Rehabilitation specializes in using the best combination of chiropractic care with spinal rehabilitative exercises for pain management and pain relief.


How Does Chiropractic Care Work?

Chiropractic care works by first relieving the tension or inflammation affecting the delicate nerves of the spine. This irritation to spinal nerves is the chief cause of spinal pain. When chiropractic adjustments are given to relieve the pressure placed on the nerves of the spine, relief can come almost instantly. And with chiropractic care, patients not only respond to spine pain conditions, but also to conditions affecting the entire body as well.


What Are Examples Of Conditions Treated By Your Chiropractic Clinic?

Chiropractic care is an effective treatment for a wide variety of conditions. The following is a partial list of some of the most common conditions our chiropractic office care can help address. If you do not see your specific condition listed, please give us a call so we can personally address your specific concerns:


What Will Happen When Meeting With Advanced Spinal Care & Rehabilitation Chiropractors?

Your chiropractor will take the time to listen to your health history and concerns before performing a detailed physical examination. He or she will then recommend a patient-specific treatment plan that will help alleviate your immediate aches and pains, while also working to correct the underlying cause of your body’s pain and dysfunction.


About Our Physical Therapy Services

What Is Physical Therapy (And How Is It Different From Chiropractic Adjustments)?

Physical therapy focuses on improving muscle flexibility and strength, joint function, and proprioception. This line of treatment leads to increased balance, coordination, kinesthetic awareness, and better posture. Physical therapy also reduces pain and dysfunction by correcting imbalances. This line of care - which differs from chiropractic health care - is all achieved through specific exercises, therapy, and modalities individualized for each patient’s condition. 


What Does Physical Therapy Look Like At Your Practice?

Our physical therapists develop unique treatment plans for each patient’s condition. While every treatment plan is different, successful physical therapy typically requires the active participation of the patient in the clinic 2-3 times per week (30-45 minutes) and home exercises daily. The duration of therapy also varies by condition but generally covers 4-6 weeks. Note that patients who participate as advised by their physical therapist receive the most benefit from their rehabilitation program.


Do You Use Other Services Alongside Physical Therapy Exercises?

Yes! Clinical studies have shown maximum recovery within a reduced amount of time in patients who receive physical therapy in conjunction with chiropractic office adjustments. Specific treatment is always coordinated through team meetings held by the physical therapist and the chiropractor. This partnership lends success to achieve optimal results for our patients.


About Our Medical Massage Therapy Services

Why Do You Offer Medical Massage Therapy?

Our massage therapies are not your spa's massage therapies. Medical massage therapy is outcome-based massage, targeted to a patient’s specific problem(s) based on a thorough assessment/evaluation. Therapeutic massage therapy can be a powerful ally for many of our patients, particularly in addressing stress relief and pain management needs. Additionally, all of our licensed therapists are under the direction of a supervising physician. This means the patient will receive the highest level of care and knowledge available.


What Is The #1 Reason Patients Seek Massage Therapies?

Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease and illness is stress-related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether in this fast-paced world may be idealistic, massage can, without a doubt, help manage stress. This translates into:

  • Decreased anxiety
  • Enhanced sleep quality
  • Greater energy
  • Improved concentration
  • Increased blood circulation
  • Reduced fatigue
  • Reduced inflammation and swelling
  • Reduction in joint stiffness
  • Loosens tight muscles
  • Promotes lymphatic drainage
  • Aides in the development of muscle and connective tissue reconstruction
  • Decreases scar tissue formation

Furthermore, clients often report a sense of perspective and clarity after receiving a massage. The emotional balance bodywork provides can often be just as vital and valuable as the more tangible physical benefits.


What Are The Effects And Benefits Of Medical Massage Therapy?

Research shows that with massage:

  • Arthritis sufferers note fewer aches and less stiffness and pain.
  • Asthmatic children show better pulmonary function and increased peak airflow.
  • Burn injury patients report reduced pain, itching, and anxiety.
  • High blood pressure patients demonstrate lower diastolic blood pressure, anxiety, and stress hormones.
  • Premenstrual syndrome sufferers have decreased water retention and cramping.
  • Preterm infants have improved weight gain.


About Our Spinal Decompression Services

What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Spinal Decompression Therapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that is used to treat multiple disorders of the spinal column. Specific problems addressed by this therapy include osteoarthritis, disc injury, spinal stenosis, traveling pain down the leg or arm, headaches and neck/low back pain.


What Are Other Conditions This Therapy Can Help With?

Spinal Decompression has been medically proven to reduce pain and alleviate symptoms and conditions related to:

  • Herniated/Bulging Discs
  • Degenerative Discs
  • Chronic Neck/Back Pain
  • Sciatica
  • Radiculopathy
  • Arthritis or Facet Syndrome
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Pre/Post Surgical Patients

Why Should I Consider This Therapy?

Consider the following stats on spinal decompression care:

  • Surgery success rate is 50% - Spinal Decompression success rate is 93%.
  • Surgery is Painful and Risky. Spinal Decompression is Safe and Painless.
  • Surgery often takes people away from work. Spinal Decompression allows most people to work during their ongoing treatment.

With studies finding that 93% of patients report relief of symptoms, it is worth considering a method of treatment designed to correct pain - not just mask it.
